List members who are not members of AHSGR (American Historical Society of 
Germans from Russia) may not be aware that in the latest issue of their 
Journal (Vol. 31, no. 3, Fall, 2008) is a long and worthwhile article by 
Eric Schmaltz on the removal of ethnic Germans from the Ukraine (including 
Volhynia) in 1943 and 1944 by Nazi forces.  I'd recommend it to anyone whose 
relatives went through that experience and to anyone just curious about it. 
It's called, "The 'Long Trek': The SS Population Transfer of Ukrainian 
Germans to the Polish Warthegau and its Consequences, 1943-1944."  The 
footnotes provide a long list of suggestions for further reading.

Copies of the Journal can be obtained from www.ahsgr.org, under "Products", 
"Journals".  The charge for non-members is $4.50 + shipping.
